What is the Coast Guard Auxiliary?
The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard. The Auxiliary was established by Congress in June, 1939 as the Volunteer Reserve, and conducted many of the Coast Guard's domestic missions while the Active Duty and Reserve components were forward deployed during World War II.
Today, the missions of the Auxiliary are:
- To promote and improve Recreational Boating Safety;
- To provide a diverse array of specialized skills, trained crews, and capable facilities to augment the Coast Guard and enhance safety and security of our ports, waterways and coastal regions;
- To Support Coast Guard operational, administrative and logistical requirements.
